Be Inspired: Stepping Out

To do list: Wedding dress – check!

What next? Shoes of course!

It’s time to put your best foot forward and pick the perfect pump (or flat) to complete your wedding day ensemble. Whether you have dreamed of having your very own IRL Cinderella glass slipper moment or comfort is the key, picking the perfect pair of shoes has many considerations to contemplate. 

A shoe can elevate a look – if you do it right. For all of you that have had heels become an extension of your leg, then sky high is best. However, if you are used to flats do not feel the pressure to alter your personal style to fit a bridal mode. Rather, consider going for a midi-block heel for comfort, without compromising on style. 

Think about the hemline of your gown. Will you be able to see the shoe? Is it ballerina length, a full ball gown or a slinky fishtail with an impossibly high thigh split? We here at TWC are able to help with a list of 5 shoe styles to help you navigate your walk down the aisle.

1- These Boots were made for walking (down the aisle)

A trendy, yet chic way to take your first steps into wedded life; this ivory ankle boot with a Mother of Pearl and Polished Brass Block heel could be the option for you. 

The Jasmine boot by Freya Rose is ideal for a cosmopolitan wedding day look or a dress with a shorter hemline. The best part is that these boots are not just made for your wedding day – they can ease perfectly into your everyday wardrobe! A real investment for future date nights and anniversary celebrations. 

2- Could these be your something blue?

We all know how it goes, something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. Usually referring to items which are discreetly embedded into the completed bridal look. 

However this is no more. This Azura blue satin pump by Aruna Seth with signature crystal embellished butterfly delicately placed on the front of the pointed pump is a bold choice of colour, yet classic and elegant in design. This statement shoe is guaranteed to be a talking point at your wedding and even rival the likes of Carrie Bradshaw

3- Sneaker Weather

This Aruna Seth Rocket Sneaker in white elevates the sports-luxe look to bridal status. 

Whoever said that trainers were just made for the gym clearly never added a crystal embezzled butterfly to their trainer. For a cool and contemporary take on the traditional ivory pump, think about the bridal trainer. Comfort is guaranteed with the addition of the platform sole and a padded lining, allowing you to stand for the entire day and dance into the early hours. 

4- Cinderella Who?

Nothing beats a classic pump. A timeless, elegant choice, which oozes Hollywood glamour, yet has versatility with the option to customise & make the look your own. 

This streamline Freya Rose court features the rose style Floret Couture clip on the front, adding not only a point of interest, but a way to integrate your accessory details together and tie the look altogether. The perfect way to have your chosen shoes as an extension of your bridal style. 

Top tip, when in doubt a classic ivory pump is the way to go.

5- Retro Style 

Inspired by the pavements of the past, this stylish ivory leather peep toe slingback by Freya Rose features a Mother of Pearl and Polished Brass Block heel. Ideal for an outdoor wedding and walking across different terrains. This is a trendy and chic take on the bridal pump, but one which exudes sophistication in abundance.
